My parents' Chinese American friends who voted Trump because "he's a businessman" and "I'm sick of wars" (literal quotes) already regretted supporting him after his sabre rattling. My parents who were reluctantly supporting Hillary now say they should have joined me in volunteering for her.

Had the massive movement Bernie claimed would turn out for him in the primaries actually existed, he would have won.

Most Americans never wanted him elected. Now he continues to defy the will of the majority of Americans to help Putin. When are Americans going to get a government that looks after America?

I mean, he tipped an election in the most powerful country in the world.[/b] Even if he was put in solitary for the rest of his life he could die a very happy man.

Beet, I'll bet you no one hear flipped from Hilldawg to The Donald because of Comey.

Your state had 6.163 million votes, and was decided by 44,292, or 0.7% of the vote. Most of the impact of the Comey letter was indirect: Democrats staying home, Republicans turning out, and people influenced by the mood and momentum of the final days of the campaign. Actual people who flipped only needed to be like 1 in 200.

Nice display of sophistry to justify your insane deification of a godawful candidate who will go down in history as one of the worst things to ever happen to Democrats.

A candidate who came within 80,000 votes of delivering the first Democratic third term since Truman.

He has promised to leave Congress if he wins. He doesn't want to but others have made a convincing case that it's a full time job.

Let's not pretend Putin isn't a war criminal. Review of wars wherein Russia has invaded another country:

Chechnya - 50,000 to 250,000 dead
Georgia - ~400 dead, 190,000 displaced
Ukraine - 10,000 dead, 1.4 million displaced
Syria - 312,000 to 470,000 dead at the hands of his friend Assad, 5 million refugees

Not counting the airline he shot down, the people he's had poisoned, etc.

You can scream 'Iraq!' 'Iraq!' 'Iraq!' all day long but the fact is, Bush isn't president anymore. Putin is.

Mao literally established the territorial integrity of the country. Deng just made it richer. I prefer Deng politically but Mao objectively did more.

The Democrats were still using our bench from 2008. Hillary earned more votes towards a nomination then, than any Republican- including Trump -has, ever.

The primary is not for another two and a half to three years. People won't necessarily prioritize his vote on prescription drug importation by then. Maybe the ferociousness of this backlash will penetrate his tin-eared head and he will realize that special interest politics won't do even in the slightest if he wants to have any kind of national future at all. It's just too early to tell.

Republicans can't fathom the possibility that someone's position on the electoral college might not be due to partisan calculations but actually the merits of the issue. Frightening.
40  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: James Clapper (DNI): U.S. intel has not verified accusations against Trump on: January 12, 2017, 08:53:24 pm
Conservatives believe what Clapper says now? The dossier is real. The explosive facts about Trump's hotel activities contained within are unverified. That doesn't mean it's necessarily fake. They could very well be real, it could very well be false, but it hasn't been proven either way. So it can't be said to be fake in either case. The author of the memo, however, is not anonymous, has a good reputation, and has provided significant, authentic information in the past.

If there is even a chance it's real, this is a major problem, since our CIC is compromised to a foreign superpower. The best thing to do would be to get it all out now.

Nope, The burden of proof always falls on the accuser.

Right, so anyone who accuses it of being fake has to prove that it is.

Roll Eyes

So you're fine with there being a 50% chance the president is being blackmailed by Russia?
41  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: DOJ watchdog will probe Clinton emails investigation on: January 12, 2017, 08:50:30 pm
Clapper is proven to have lied under oath, and Comey is a partisan hack who had a Trump sign on his yard. He only signed onto the Russia attribution because the evidence was so overwhelming.

Great standard. I guess we needed the $2 trillion Iraq war to prove that they didn't have WMD.

Or we could have just realized that possibly having WMD is no justification for a $2 trillion war.

Gentrification. The cost of owning property in a number of major cities has become unbearably high.

Trump is a globalist. He will unite the global far right against the majority of the American people.
46  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: 2017 NJ Gubernatorial race on: January 12, 2017, 03:08:23 pm
Murphy will win this in a landslide, IMO

The only thing that could change that is a Sanders endorsement for Wisniewski.

A Sanders endorsement would be interesting and could upend things, but Sanders only won 35% of the vote in the primary last June. While I like Wisniewski more than Murphy, I think the establishment means a lot in the state, and Murphy has the whole establishment behind him at this point.

That was only because the DNC rigged it for Hillary, you see /s

48  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: DOJ watchdog will probe Clinton emails investigation on: January 12, 2017, 02:52:27 pm
It's the Federal Bureau of Investigation, not the Federal Bureau of Pronouncing Judgement to Be Used in Attack Ads. They are supposed to gather the facts and quietly pass them over to Justice, who decides what to do. Comey's July press conference was high improper, as was his announcement which upended the last 2 weeks of the election and flipped the result to a man rejected by 54% of the voters.

In retrospect, Pence was a great pick. A bland, nondescript figure who wouldn't overshadow Trump, yet provided the anchor and tie between him and the traditional GOP. Someone like Greg Abbott of Texas would step into that role nicely.
